The route leads you to the scenic Rastenbach gorge, along a section of the Friedensweg trail (path of peace), and back.

The first part of the path, which crosses the woods, is easy, mostly flat, and suitable for all kinds of hikers. It can be accessed in almost all seasons: there is enough shadow to stay cool during the summer times, and during the winter months the area turns into a winter wonderland.  Once in the gorge, the terrain becomes slightly more difficult, due to the stairs and passageways which have been built to descend the gorges. The descent into the Rastenbach gorge is very suggestive, the path follows a river bed and you can admire waterfalls, alternating with lust and wild vegetation.  The landscape at the end of the gorge changes dramatically and it opens on the view of the lake of Caldaro. A small climb is required to reconnect to the main Friedensweg trail (path of peace), which will lead you back to Caldaro.  If your children are passionate about nature, this is a perfect opportunity to descend a gorge in safety.

Hello Erich, I am sorry but the German version is not available now. At the moment you can find the description in English :-)
